MSA Altair 4x  is now discontinued. Replacement here. Formerly a four gas monitor for LEL, Oxygen, Carbon Monoxide and Hydrogen Sulfide.  Optional sensors were available for Sulfur Dioxide and Nitrogen Dioxide. Its predecessor was the MSA Altair 4.

The Altair 4x sensors had a four-year operational time, made possible by MSA Xcell design application-specific integrated circuit. This allowed the controlling cell electronics to be fitted inside the sensor, providing a fast response and extended life. Sensor output was less prone to radio frequency interference. When sensor life ended an indicator notified the operator.  Battery duration was 24 hours.

The unit could survive 6 metres drops.

MotionAlert indicated man down and instant alert warned others of potential hazards.

  • Three-year warranty
  • IP67 Ingress
  • Fast sensor response <15 seconds
  • Bump test <15 seconds
  • Span calibration <60 seconds
  • Dual toxic sensor CO is H2 resistant. H2S has low H2 cross-sensitivity. Low concentration H2S option
  • LEL sensor can withstand poisons
  • Dual toxic CO/NO₂ and SO₂/H₂S-LC provides more gas configuration options
